The 3rd Annual Fashion and Football Football Draft event took place on Tuesday, April 20th at QUO Nightclub in New York City. The annual style event congratulated NFL Draft candidate, Trent Williams and was proudly presented by Ubisoft’s Just Dance along with Coors Light. Lamarr Woodley hosted the event and jokingly served as the personal body guard to Priscilla Monteiro, Publisher of The Fashion Reporter and Fashion and Football, for the evening.
The event brought out some of NFL’s finest including Vernon Gholston of The NY Jets, Brett Lockett of The New England Patriots, Corey Mays and Maurice Leggett of The Kansas City Chiefs along with Larry Johnson of The Washington Redskins who left the crowd “Just Dancing” to the multi-million selling video game for Nintendo Wii. Perry Ellis, Blac Label and Triple Fat Goose made the event fashionable by outfitting and providing gift bags for our VIP’s.
Invited guests congregated around the dance floor and bar areas where they enjoyed cocktails courtesy of Hennessy Black and refreshing beer courtesy of Coors Light along with Pirates Booty all natural snacks, giving the look and feel of Super bowl Sunday . The VIP’s had the luxury of their own personal Hennessy Black bottle to compliment appetizers passed by the lovely models of Gwendolyn and Marcia Dean who will hold The Miss World Beauty Pageant at Dream Castle Villas in Jamaica next month. Although some of the models looked as good as the dessert, they could not compare to the finger-licking coconut crusted, red velvet cupcakes and Hennessy infused cheesecake provided by Chef Ny’s Cheesecake. One of the beauty pageant contestants modeled a gorgeous gown by Karen Millen which was auctioned off along with a pair of Nike sneakers provided by Kobe Bryant, and a mink clutch provided by Brianna Marie of BET’s Harlem Heights which all benefited After-School All-Stars, a Los Angeles based charity founded by Arnold Schwarzenegger providing after-school kids with fun and safe after-school activities and opportunities.
